10 Mistakes Everyone Makes in Their First Long-Term Relationship
#1 Ditching Friends for Them
Any time your relationship isolates you from your other loved ones, it's not healthy. Granted, you'll need your alone time together and you can't make it to every outing your friends are having but if you're suddenly missing every important birthday or rare family events, this could be a sign your relationship isn't good for you.
#2 Comparing Relationships
Theodore Roosevelt said it best, "comparison is the thief of joy." This is crucially important for your relationship. You and your partner are never going to do things the same way as others. You won't work the same jobs, have the same background or income as another couple so it's important to focus on the life you're creating together and not the life you think you should have just because another couple does.
